“The door that grants access to boundless fulfillment is hidden in the unfinished business of our lives.”
—James Finley, The Healing Path: A Memoir and an Invitation
The Healing Path: A Memoir and an Invitation is a contemplative reflection on the spirituality of healing. Grounded in a lifetime of spiritual direction and psychotherapy, as well as his own recovery from traumatic wounds, James offers his personal story as an invitation for readers to move into greater honesty and depth on their own journeys toward healing and wholeness. The Healing Path book is now available at the CAC bookstore! Reading the book is helpful, but not required to participate.
Attendees will be invited to slow down and become more present to themselves through retreat activities such as contemplative practices, question and response sessions with James, dialoguing with others, and witnessing the presence of the teacher.
